Let there be light!

Let there be light!

The beginning of the year can feel like a bit gloomy with daylight in short supply; it’s chilly and spring still feels a long way off. We all need something to lighten our mood and brighten our day.

Always keen to look on the bright side, the team at Be Richmond has come up with its own lightbulb moment to banish the blues and shine a light on what makes Richmond such a great place to live and work.

‘Be Brighter’ is a new campaign aimed at highlighting just what the town has to offer, even on the chilliest and gloomiest winter days – in brilliant technicolour!  What a better way to launch the campaign than by switching on some vibrant new outdoor lanterns!  Church Court is now aglow with a beautiful display of colourful lanterns, to brighten up your commute to work, your lunchtime stroll or your evening get together.

The BID businesses of Richmond are also there to brighten up your day, from healthcare to homeware and of course fashion.

Get that Glow

Eating more healthily doesn’t have to be dull and there’s a huge range of great tasting food and drink on offer to grab and go.

From bright and tasty filled Island Poke bowls to Leon’s selection of vibrant smoothies, there’s plenty of delicious ways to help you lighten the load.

Revitalise yourself with a visit to Holland & Barrett or Revital or enjoy some well-earned pampering at the Harbour Hotel HSPA.

Explore a New Style

Grab a bargain in the end of the sales or get yourself some new season treats whether is a bold statement coat from Reiss or slip on a shiny, new pair of boots from Russell & Bromley.

If you're getting back into your gym routine splash out on some new gym gear from Sweaty Betty or Lululemon.
